I’m a tad bit late on this update. Alright I’ll admit it I’m really late on this update, however that just means there is more to talk about.
Episode one full completed version ( Part 1 and Part 2) is well under way. All the edits to part 1 are completed. Those edits being the suggestions and corrections that were given to me in response to part one. As I have said before I appreciate everyone ones input and have tried to respond as best I can. My intent with the new edits was to improve the final completed episode with as much polish as possible.
I know it seems as if I am taking forever to complete this episode and I apologize for that. I just want this project to show the progress and work that is involved and hopefully help others learn from my mistakes and fumbles along the way.
The biggest challenge is finding the right balance between what you want to do and what you can do. What I mean by that is when you write there is no limit to what you can put down on paper, but when you transfer that to the animation realm things change. You can do what ever you want in animation as well, as long as you know how to. The only thing holding you back is your ability and to some extent the tools you are using. This is why the learning process is one of the things I have been trying to highlight through out this project.
Never let anyone tell you that you cannot do something. I’ve seen it to many times, so called “professionals” or experts online, instantly tearing down people who try to do something. Prove them wrong and do it, rise above and improve your abilities and skills and become whatever it is you want to be. No one can tell you what you can or can not do. It’s all about learning from your mistakes, building on your strengths and expanding your ability. This entire project is about doing exactly that.
So with all that out of the way, on to what has been accomplished. As I said the new edits have been done. I’ll highlight a few here. The portal effect for the shifter demon has been redone and edited to fit into the look and feel of the sequence better. Some pauses between dialogue along with unnecessary poses have been removed, usually before or after dialogue. The timing between camera transitions has also been edited. The sound track has been adjusted to accommodate the changes.
The addition of part 2 of the episode forced me to make a few changes to the overall episode as far as where certain sequences should happen. This was because I felt it made more sense for the flow and overall feel of the episode. So the complete episode part 1 and part 2 combined will be released next as soon as I’m finish. Actual date will be posted as to when I will be releasing the full episode.
